Trouble with your arm swelling or hurting?? -If you have had a mastectomy, you know it is the arm that keeps hurting. See the excellent site by www.breastcancer.org on this condition, called:
Arm Lymphedema
"Lymphedema (pronounced lim-fe-DEE-ma) is a side effect that can begin during or after breast cancer treatment. It isn't life threatening, but it can last over a long period of time. This condition involves swelling of the soft tissues of the arm or hand. The swelling may be accompanied by numbness, discomfort, and sometimes infection."
How to avoid it. How to manage it. Care, and more:

Download A Pink Ribbon For Breast Cancer Awareness: http://www.carolsutton.net/download_pink-ribbon.html

Carol Sutton Pink Ribbon Campaign


Download A Pink Ribbon For Breast Cancer Awareness is founded and owned by Carol L. Sutton, herself a breast cancer survivor and the first person to put up a pink ribbon on the internet in April 1996. That makes Carol Sutton's Breast Cancer Awareness site thirteen years strong. My mandate is to give away free, copyright free pink ribbon symbols, graphic, icons, images, and the like for the use and promotion of raising awareness of breast cancer. Toward that end many people worldwide have donated their designs and services to help in the cause; both men and women have created pink ribbon designs. And many people worldwide have used my free ribbons to make products that produce funds for breast cancer research and help the cause of creating more awareness of the pink ribbon symbol.
The pink ribbon considered world wide to be an international symbol for breast cancer. The pink ribbon is ubiquitous, or seeming to exist everywhere at once, and be omnipresent. No one company or organization or foundation owns the rights to this worldwide symbol. However, individual pink ribbon designers can hold all rights reserved on their copyright, for example Avon has its own, as does Estee Lauder. But only on your design.
Each design is its own copyright. You have copyright plus 'All Right Reserved' on your own pink ribbon.
No one owns the red ribbon design for SIDS/ AIDS, except their own unique design.
No one owns the pink ribbons for breast cancer, except their own unique design.
The myriad of different organizations for breast cancer worldwide all have varied symbols; but most organizations use the symbol of the pink ribbon in one form or in another. My site alone now has up over 30 different ribbon designs. All free of copyright. Many designed by different designers and are visually different and unique. Many pink ribbons images are used on different products. There should be no confusion in the market place over the use of these products for breast cancer awareness; since each product stems from a different, visually different, and unique design and since no one organization owns the rights to the symbol of the pinkribbon or pinkribbons.
As I understand it, no one organization in the globe holds all the rights to using the pink ribbon as their symbol for their organization or cause. No organization should prohibit the use of pink ribbons or pinkribbons by others who seek to promote breast cancer awareness. Efforts to inhibit the use of pinkribbons or pink ribbons, hurts the cause of awareness of breast cancer and keeps the world one step away from finding a cure. Efforts to prevent the sale of products with pinkribbons hurt the collection of funds that could help in breast cancer prevention, research and cure. Pinkribbons stand for and mean the same thing everywhere. There are just different designs to meet the same goal which is to promote Awareness of Breast Cancer and raise money for a cure.
There is not one approved design for Canada and another approved design for the U.S.A; or New Zealand; or Australia; or Mexico or for that matter any other country around the world.
